News The F1 in Schools initiative was set up in 2000 as a way of raising the profile of engineering as a career option and assisting the teaching of the subject in schools and colleges.

However, according to this article, rather than being a simple exercise, the 11-18 year old kids use state-of-the-art software programs that enable them to play around with CAD (computer aided design) and CFD (computational fluid dynamics), just like real F1 designers.

Static Bed Height in a Fluidized Bed
Posted Tue November 29, 2005 @09:42AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Help Desk Monty writes "Hi Everybody. Monty here.

It would be wonderful if someone could tell me how I can specify static bed height in a fluidized bed using STAR-CD. For instance, my static bed height is 0.1m in a bed 1m high.

I believe that I have to specify volume fraction of the solid particles as 10% (0.1) i.e. 0.1m/1.0m and also multiply the solid particle packing porosity by this 10%. Is my perspective right or is there another way to specify static bed height in the fluidized bed?"
